The marriage of Mata Schattschneider and Arnold E. Will took place on Wednesday afternoon, June 18, at two-thirty at the Lutheran church. Rev. William Faulstich performed the ceremony. The church was filled with friends and relatives. The bride was attired in white satin with a wreath and veil and she carried a large bouquet of calla lilies and smilax. Lydia Neiting of Pomeroy, a friend of the bride, was her only attendant. She carried a bouquet of larkspur and calliopsis.
The groom was attended by Oscar Schattschneider, brother of the bride. Little Geraldine Wegener, a niece of the bride, was dressed in peach crepe and acted as flower girl. The Ushers were Henry Behnke and Harold Clausen. During the ceremony Miss Irma Mueller of Fort Dodge sang, “O Perfect Love.”
A three-course wedding dinner was served after the ceremony at the home of the bride’s parents to the immediate relatives and a few friends. The bride’s colors, peach and green, were carried out through the dinner. The table decorations were tapers and flowers.
The young couple left later in the day for a motor trip through Yellowstone Park. They will also visit with the bride’s brother, Ernest Schattschneider at Worland, Wyoming, and the groom’s sister, Mrs. D. S. Porter at Lewiston, Montana. The bride was wearing a traveling suit of brown tweed, with hat and accessories of the same color. She is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. August Schattschneider. She received her education in the local schools and for the past four years she has been assistant at the Lutheran Home Finding Society in Fort Dodge. She is a charming young lady and will make an ideal helpmate for the man of her choice.
The groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. August Will of Fort Dodge. He was graduated from the Fort Dodge schools and later he was graduated from the Concordia Teachers’ College at River Forest, Illinois. He then took a two years’ course in Augustana Conservatory, Rock Island, Illinois, on the pipe organ. Since, he has been teaching in Trinity parochial school in Davenport, where the young couple will be at home after August tenth.

Becker and family, and Irma and Ruth Mueller, all of Fort Dodge; Mrs. William Wegener and children, Clifton, and Mr. and Mrs. F. G. Heise and family, Easton, Minnesota.
